@TonyM I would recommend the pcs 10, it's a little cheaper than the feedback one. It doesn't fold down as neatly and easily as the feedback though.


Thanks for the recommendation. It is indeed cheaper but I wanted to have an excellent quality and I was ready to pay more for that.
I will use the Feedback Sport pro Elite as a work stand but more often as a wash stand (most probably 1-2 times per week during 6 months per year)

For cheap, you should look on ebay. I found various generic, no brand name, stands. Something like this:

It should be good enough for washing.

I have one of these that would work fine for washing. Super cheap, very handy and super portable:

I see that one clamps on the chain stays. I actually have this one which clamps to the quick release:

There are at least two Spiders:
T3325: clamps frame/post
T3350: frame rests with BB and is secured with fork.

Which one POS?

I had a Tacx Spider T3350 and the quality was really not that good. Not really stable and cheap pieces of plastic everywhere.
I was very disappointed and I sold it right away and bought the Park Tool PRS-20. More expensive but a much better quality.

Yeah what TonyM says. Cheap, soft, plastic parts used on the parts that take the most wear - like the lock part to change angle. Utter junk.

Need to eBay it when I can be arsed. That Park Tool above sounds better.

have it, use it - can't find any issues with it so far. Easiest stand on the market to travel with. And lightest.

If memory serves well Giant-Alpecin was using it (?) .

I can be wrong, and have plenty of examples for that ;)

Yes it was indeed quite light! But not as stable like the Park Tool etc...
